So over in the realm of DS9 there is discussion on Michelle Forbes passing up the role of First Officer Ro on Deep Space 9, and I've got to thinking about how she was offered the chance to reprise the character as a member of the main cast in VOY. Again, she turned it down and the produces created the character of B'Elanna Torres. I'm just wondering what Ro's position onboard might've been, had the actress agreed to it. I'd suspect she'd most likely have been the Conn Officer, though seeing as how TNG made a big point of her advanced tactical training, might she have become the new Tactical Officer? I'm a little dubious about her being in charge of Security/Tactical, given that she is branded a terrorist, though it would be an interesting dilemma (can Captain Janeway actually trust her new Security Chief?), or might they have made her the Maquis leader and appointed her Voyager's new First Officer? Perhaps her character would've replaced Paris, starting off as the observer before having her commission reinstated and becoming Conn Officer. If she was the Maquis Tactical Officer would Tuvok have been the Chief Engineer or Ops Manager (Kim becomes a lowly junior lieutenant who finds himself taking charge or engineering, or an intern who is the last surviving member of the medical staff)? Trying to work out just where she would fit throws up some interesting possibilities.
